Hi!

Thank you all for your aid! Unfortunately I cannot get to the final breakthrough :(

I'm not sure that I made a proper installation for Qt5 and qwt.

Anyone of you have installed caQtDM on Ubuntu, if so please can you help me get to the
right direction because now I'm kinda stuck with this project.

I can share my installation process so maybe you can find a mistake that can be the root of my troubles:

Qt5.6.3:

	- Downloaded qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.6.3.run
	- chmod +x qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.6.3.run
	- ./qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.6.3.run
	- Followed the instructions within the installer wizard, and set the installation folder to /usr/local/Qt5.6.3
	- After a succesful installation I also installed some other dependencies:
		- sudo apt-get install mesa-common-dev (installed because qwt install has thrown -> fatal error: GL/gl.h: No such file or directory)
		- sudo apt-get install libglu1-mesa-dev (installed because qwt install has thrown -> cannot find -lGL)

qwt-6.1.3:
	- Downloaded qwt-6.1.3.tar.bz2 and extracted it to folder qwt-6.1.3
	- cd qwt-6.1.3
	- /usr/local/Qt5.6.3/5.6.3/gcc_64/bin/qmake qwt.pro
	- make (success)
	- sudo make install (success)

From here I tried several methods to install caQtDM without success, so if anyone of you have hands-on experience with
Ubuntu and caQtDM together I'd really appreciate the knowledge share!

Again thank you all for your efforts!

Yours truly,

Hi Antal,

Before attempting to build be sure to setup your environment first:

I started with Qt5.4.1  ages ago. :)
An example, follows for those who use the unix bash shell:
Note: PACKAGE_TOP is the location that you installed your packages ==> Qt5.x and qwt 6.1.x Just replace $PACKAGE_TOP as appropriate with your  "/opt" or "/usr/local"
*********************************************************************************************************
# ==========================================================
# Let's setup for caQtDM: From PSI
# Display Editor and Manager for Control System GUI Development # Both Editor/Runtime # Using QT5 and QWT # ==========================================================
QTDIR=$PACKAGE_TOP/Qt-5.4.1
QTINC=$PACKAGE_TOP/Qt-5.4.1/include
QTLIB=$PACKAGE_TOP/Qt-5.4.1/lib
export QT_PLUGIN_PATH="${QTDIR}/plugins"
export PATH=$QTDIR/bin:$PATH
# ==========================================================

# ==========================================================
# QWT Setup
# ==========================================================
export QWT_ROOT=$PACKAGE_TOP/qwt-6.1.2
export QT_PLUGIN_PATH="${QWT_ROOT}/plugins:$QT_PLUGIN_PATH"

# ==========================================================
# Plugin location for caQtDM and epicsQT # ==========================================================
export QT_PLUGIN_PATH="${EPICS_EXTENSIONS}/lib/${EPICS_HOST_ARCH}:$QT_PLUGIN_PATH"
# ==========================================================

***********************************************************************************************

Note: you can put the above in a file and source it before building caQtDM



Cheers,
Ernesto

Subject: caQtDM installation help needed

Dear Folks,

I'm in a bit of trouble with the installation of caQtDM-4.1.5 on Ubuntu 16.04.

As the installation notes says the prerequisites are Qt5.x and qwt 6.1.x and Qt Designer (however I'm not sure whether I need Qt Designer if I have Qt Creator installed with Qt5.6.3).

I managed to install Qt5.6.3 to /opt/Qt5.6.3/ and qwt6.1.3 at /usr/local/qwt-6.1.3/.

I extracted the caQtDM archive to /usr/local/epics/extension/src/caqtdm-4.1.5.

However I'm not sure how to set the configuration variables inside caQtDM_Env.

Also a broken qt4 installation can be found on the system and it seems like the caQtDM_Build script tries to use that one during installation as I get the following error message when I run the script:

qmake: could not exec '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/bin/qmake': No such file or directory

I'm a bit stuck at the moment, so any help regarding to the overall installation of caQtDM with the mentioned prerequisites would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

Yours truly,
